        Pretty good sales, PC gamers must be in heaven right now.
        If I had a gaming PC I'd probably had bought a few things while still being under $60.

          Just Cause 2 is the best game ever. I'm tempted to grab it just to try out the multiplayer mod the community made for it.

            I've played it. It's awesome! So smooth!


            edit: sorry, battery was dying.

            Anyways, its great. The weapons aren't really accurate though, yet, but they are working on a new technique i hear. They are having a test i think next week. If you do try it, remember to use the teleport commands to get to more populated areas since that map is humongous.

              Heads up on an old game that they don't make anymore

              http://store.steampowered.com/app/238210/

              System Shock II

              This game was as good as Half Life and ranks as one of my favorite all time vid games. The music is awesome as is the general atmosphere and playability.

              For $2.50 where else are you going to find an elite game that scored 92 on Metacritic? This game goes for 30+ on ebay for the disk and packaging.

              edit:
              by the way check out the rewards it had won;

                Steam summer sales are like christmas in july...Well if you are a computer gamer that is. With all the uproar Microsoft recieved about it's "always on" policy (That they eventually reversed) some people wondered how computer game stores (steam in particular) have been "getting away with it for so long." And that reason is blatantly obvious since the start of the steam summer sale. Games stay full price for maybe 6 months on steam and then quickly become cheaper and cheaper. Steam should be the business model Microsoft and Sony follow when they do decide to go to totally digital media.

                Last night I purchased Dishonored and all its DLC for 11 dollars. 11....this same content on xbox live would have cost me 100. I could have bought Alan Wake and all its DLC for 3 bucks... an older game but still how much would this have cost on Xbox or Playstation?

                Thanks for the recommendation Dizzolve I will check it out!

                  hell ya, i usually don't buy games any other time except when steam has sales like this or when there is a game i just gotta have.

                  i am too ashamed to admit how many games i have bought since this sale has started, its a little ridiculous.

                    You should get Alan Wake for that cheap, it's a really unique game with some awesome storytelling.

                        I've spent $30 so far this sale. But that was during the first like 3 days... then I saw that my wallet was getting low (only $23 left) and so I decided to slow down. but i've voted on every vote!
